– Unless otherwise stated! Be sure to check events for alternate venues.
– Can’t find us? Ask the Black Bull staff where the slam is! They’ll be happy to point you in the right direction!
3rd Thursday of every month. Sign-up is @ 8pm with Open Mic and then Slam to follow
For smoking hot poetry!
A cover charge $5 (Only $5???) goes towards paying for the feature performer and prize money for the winner of the slam.
As always we’ll have an Open Mic for any and all types of performance; bring your guitar, your songs, your stand-up, your rants and ragtime show tunes – it’s all about getting it out there! Or you can always sign up for the slam, see if you have what it takes to reign supreme, and take home the cash prize.

Burlington Slam Project ANYTHING GOES SLAM
Feat. The 2015 Guelph Poetry Slam Team!
Never heard of ’em.
This month, we are hosting our annual ANYTHING GOES slam!
What does that mean? It means props! Costumes! Music! Time extensions! Covers!
It means NONE OF OUR RULES EXIST ANYMORE (though we try to keep a 4-5 minute time limit on pieces)
This is -always- a good time, and is well worth making it out to! ‘Cause on top of that, we’ve got a really cool feature! The 2015 Guelph Poetry Slam team!
The 2015 Guelph Poetry Slam team is a collection of honest voices influenced by various arts of the heart, youthful philosophies and earthly inheritances; through music, the word, theatre and poetry Beth Anne Ellipsis, Evie T, Eitan Gallant, K-T Job, and Truth Is … bring the rainbow of life experiences, human emotions, and personal explorations to expression. Embarking on a year-long poetically profound journey, the team has a fresh voice, dynamic style, and blasting poignancy. Recently placing 2nd at the 4th annual provincial team poetry slam, SLAMtario, the GPS team is sure to let you know “where it’s at!”
Bring a fiver and a friend, and prepare to break some rules! It’s gonna be a hot night!
Hope to see y’all out!
